@ewarren and @amyklobuchar are getting all this important endorsement love for a simple reason: They're the best candidates in the race.
@realDonaldTrump Er...NPR receives no direct funding from the federal government. It does get some grants from federal agencies that amount to something like 2% of its budget. Maybe, as president, you ought to know these things or you might end up looking stupid.
Something broke in America this week. We have been spiraling downward since Trump's election, but this week, we crossed a line. The President and his men began asserting that they were above the law--and effectively no one in our system did anything to stop them.
History will look back and determine that the fact Trump got this far into his presidency without being impeached was a serious failure of the nature and character of the U.S. Congress and a sign our checks and balances do not work nearly as well as they should.
Rosenstein is a good guy. Mueller is a hero who will save us. Barr is an institutionalist. Pompeo is one of the grown-ups. Tillerson is a weakling. Ivanka and Jared are moderating influences. Mattis will stand up and save us. Perhaps we need a mass resignation of pundits.
